Description Christopher Meng 2014-02-05 10:34:20 UTC
celt has been merged into opus code and should be obsoleted by opus as well, see the header of celt website[1].

Affected packages:

ffmpeg-libs
gstreamer-plugins-bad-free-extras
jack-audio-connection-kit
jack-audio-connection-kit-dbus
jack-audio-connection-kit-example-clients

I'm not sure how many packages affected by jack1, so this bug is a tracker currently.

It replaces it in terms of functionality but it's not a drop in replacement. Applications need to be ported over to the changed API, includes etc. So what should really happen is that everything that builds against celt should be ported to support opus and the package eventually just retired and when that happens it won't obsolete/provide celt as it's not a drop in replacement.

There's other things that come into play for example VoIP apps that use celt would need to ensure that they support celt on both endpoints and stuff like that which we don't have control over. The first stage of the process is to ensure everything that supports and builds against celt does so with opus as well.
